Summer 2017

Thank you for visiting my web site!  I hope you have had a wonderful summer so far.

I would like to bring you up to date on some recent changes. We no longer represent Scalamandre'. With their merge with Stark Fabrics, they wanted a dedicated independent Rep. and I am committed to my other lines which I have has for 5 + years. As a result, we parted company as friends.  Scalamandre' has also moved showrooms in Seattle. I wish them all the best! 

I am happy to be representing several lines from the Michael Folks Showroom: Colony, Chelsea Textiles & Editions, Les Houles', Suzanne Tucker Home and True North rugs. Carol, Meshelle and I are always happy to assist you!

Please check out Helser Brothers Drapery Hardware- this is a dream come true for all your Drapery Hardware needs. Wide spans, many finishes to select from, Ripplefold, traversing, Outdoor products, Motorization and much more, including custom! Production time is 5-7 days on standard products. No charge Fed Ex Ground on any order over $100. Helser Brothers has everything you need for stunning window fashions! 

Lastly, I want to honor our dear friend and colleague, Michael Folks. Sadly, Michael lost his 2 year fight with cancer in June.  Recently, Kelly Forslund hosted an industry memorial to remember a great man who truly influenced the Pacific Northwest Design Industry. Carol and Taylor Folks are a loving legacy that Michael leaves with us. We are so very grateful for Michael's legacy. A Designer asked me what I will remember Michael for. Michael had a tireless work ethic with tons of energy and persistence. He also had amazing taste and a keen eye for fine and classic design.  These wonderful talents are part of his legacy. Michael, you will be greatly missed and we are happy you are now at peace. 

Enjoy the rest of Summer! It is going fast and the days are growing shorter....savor each moment doing what you love and with people you love!

Take care!

HAPPY 2017!

We hope 2017 is off to a great start for you! Thanks for visiting our web site. Please note that we have updated our line list. We have also added new collections from each of our lines to the Gallery. Please visit the Blackboard for winter delights and inspiration.

We are thrilled to be reunited with the storied line of Scalamandre'! If you have not shopped Scalamandre' in awhile, you will be surprised at all the new products introduced over the past 18 months. Susan North, Scalamandre's Creative Director has done an amazing job of bringing forth relevant product. As well, she has combed the Scalamandre' archives and has re-introduced some true treasures! Please contact me for your own personal showing in your Studio or at the Michael Folks Showroom. I would love to show you the "new" Scalamandre'!

As we reflect back on a good 2016, we thank you for your business! As a result, we were able to make a nice donation to "No Child Hungry" on behalf of our wonderful vendors and clients like you! This is our 5th year of giving on your behalf at the Holiday season.

In this New Year, please let us know how we can be of service to you. It is truly our delight and honor to work with you!

Warmest regards,

Welcome!

Happy 2016! As we welcome in a New Year, let me take a moment to share with you many MAJOR changes from the last year.

We said "farewell" to Polly McArthur & Associates Showroom in the fall of 2015 as Polly retired and sold her building. It was sad for us and yet we are very happy for Polly and her next adventure of relaxing! I so enjoyed working with her and the showroom team for over 10 years. As a result, the following lines have moved to the following showrooms:

JAB and Brands has moved to The Dixon Group, in their new space, Suite 232. JAB is proud to be a part of this beautiful showroom and team!

Thibaut and Anna French are also now at The Dixon Group. The lines are up and ready for your shopping experience! Please include The Dixon Group on your next shopping trip at SDC.

The remaining lines from Polly's; Beaumont &  Fletcher, Christian Fischbacher - with Harsey & Myung Jin, Chelsea Editions, Colony, DeGourney, de La Couna, Gemelli, Janet Yonaty, Marvic, Minton- Spidell, Scalamandre' and Suzanne Tucker Home have all found at home at the newly remodeled and lovely
Michael Folks Showroom.

It was a very busy Fall! Lots of packing, moving and unpacking! As a result, our web site is up to date with all these changes. Please feel free to shop from the comfort of your office and home by simply clicking on the links. From there you will discover a world of exclusive products for both Residential and Contract applications.

Once again, we complete 2015 with grateful hearts. We thank you for your on-going support and business! As a token of our appreciation, we have made a donation in name of our Clients and Vendors to: No Kid Hungry, Share Our Strength, a fantastic organization, working hard to end childhood hunger in America. This is our 4th year of donating to this worthy cause, in honor of your valued business. Thank you for making this possible!

As always, we learn so much from you!  Please continue to let us know what we can do better - in order to serve you.  Thanks again for visiting the A&D Studios/ Lesli Ann Studios web site.

Some New Years thoughts as we start upon 2016: Every day is an opportunity to make the right and smarter choices, in all aspects of our lives. May we greet each day with enthusiasm to make new choices and start anew!

Warmest regards,

Lesli Ann Cone

Happy New Year!

Welcome to 2012! I hope your Holiday season was filled with JOY!

As we embark upon a new year I want to communicate a few changes at A&D Studios. As of January 31, 2011 I will no longer be representing JAB, Chivasso, Soleil Bleu and Gardisette Fabrics. I will continue to represent JAB Decorative hardware, Vol II and Metropolitan in Washington, Oregon and Idaho. If you have any JAB orders you are currently working on, I would very much appreciate if you can place them prior to month end.  Thank you! The new JAB (fabrics only) representative for Washington, Oregon, Alaska and Idaho is Marck Bloemers, Sales Director of JAB Anstoetz. His office number is: 253-274-0344. If you are located in Montana and Wyoming, your new JAB representative is the Moda Antica Showroom: 303-733-9003 phone and sales@moda-antica.com via email.  As always I am happy to assist you with your Decorative hardware needs. Polly McArthur & Associates is continuing to represent all the JAB products in their beautiful Seattle showroom.  I have enjoyed working with you all over the past 11 years with the JAB company. It has truly been an honor for me and I am thrilled to continue to represent the JAB Decorative Hardware. Thanks so much for all your business and support! You can always view the complete Hardware product line at: www.jab.de/en/curtainrods/binder.

I am thrilled to share with you that as of January 1, 2012, Polly McArthur & Associates is now proudly representing Thibaut and Anna French!  They are ready for you to visit and browse the oldest and most exclusive wall paper line in America as well as exquisite fabrics!

In the coming week, my line representation on the web site and the links will be updated to reflect these changes. Please stay tuned and let us know if there is anything we can do to assist you in creating beautiful environments for your clients! Thanks again and our sincerest wishes for a happy, healthy and wise New Year!
